This is a regular haunt of ours, 45 minutes drive through verdant countryside and chocolate box lid villages crammed with vernacular Essex cottages away it is an easy choice. The menu is average in scale for a bistro pub but the portions are generous and the food arrives hot and well presented. During this visit they were very busy and... More

The first time here, lovely old pub in the country, We had Lasagne, best ever, and Chicken, bacon and mushroom pie, both big meals, but there was a big menu, plus specials boards, so lots to choose from. We arrived about 1pm and it was fairly quiet, but it soon got very busy, so it might be a good idea... More

Visited this beautiful Olde World Pub with four other friends. for lunch. We arrived late after getting lost but we phoned ahead as it was getting near to closing time and ordered our meals. Our meals were ready and waiting for us and I must say they were all extremely tasty. I sampled the chicken pie with vegetables and it... More

Lovely Inn, really nice room with all you need for a good sleep. Modern furnishings. Lovely having facilities for breakfast in the room. Quite a way out down narrow country lanes, but worth a visit. Friendly owners.

We met up on Sunday to have the traditional Roast the meat and yorkshires were excellent but disappointing roast potatoes were very few and hard not crispy, likewise the vegetables were undercooked in our opinion The starters & sweets were both ok.The staff where very pleasant throughout.

We recently stayed overnight at The Fox Inn and received a warm welcome. The accommodation was excellent very clean, comfortable and with good facilities and excellent free wi-fi. The pub itself is very clean and welcoming and the dinner and breakfast were well cooked and delicious. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

An OK place to stay however we only booked here because breakfast was included. When we noticed that is was only continental breakfast we felt it was a con!!!!! So don't book here if it's for the offer of full English breakfast as you will be disappointed. You can get full English but it wil cost you extra £7.95 extra... More

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to post a review however I feel your 2* rating is rather unfair. First of all, when you booked, you would have been advised that the breakfast that is included is a continental breakfast which is provided in the room. It consists of a selection of three cereals, croissants, jam, orange juice, tea and... More
